The WBO World Jr. Featherweight champion is preparing for his April 13 world championship battle against WBA World Super Bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux at the historic Radio City Music Hall. Rigondeaux is an undefeated Cuban boxing champion.

Amid controversy over drug-testing, a condition set by Nonito on Rigondeaux, he said he is willing to go ahead with the bout for the sake of fans who have already bought tickets and made travel arrangements.

“I did not expect it would be this hard to enforce drug testing on my opponent,” Nonito said in a press statement.

Tickets, priced at $300, $150, $75 and $35, are available at the Radio City Music Hall Box Office, Madison Square Garden Box Office, Ticketmaster charge by phone (866-858-0008) and online at, and Photos by Chris Farina of Top Rank
